The Unspoken Pull

In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – What Pulls At Your Soul? 

After all is done

after all is quiet

the volume turns up

on my soul’s longings

I hear its cry of 


an unspoken ache

to be loved, even

if its only by 

one person–it would

be enough–a soulmate, friend

a desperate desire for

my soul to become

hallowed ground where the

 Wild Iris

can grow eternal

vibrant beauty that 

others will desire to

know and love…

It’s been a lifetime’s longing

and I only have one third

of a life’s time left

My soul’s pull cries out;

“Will I ever know this

before I leave this world?”

Word For The Day…


And if you follow your truth down the road to peace and the affirmation of love, if you shine like a beacon for all to see, then the poetry of all the great dreamers and philosophers is yours to manifest in a nation, a world community, and a Beloved Community that is finally at peace with itself.
